In the previous chapter we considered the problem of the resonant slot iris in the infinite rectangular waveguide in the case where all surfaces of waveguide elements were supposed to be perfectly conductive ones.

Thin-film coatings of materials with variable electrophysical properties can be used for expansion of functional capabilities of waveguide devices and realization of non-mechanical control of their characteristics by means of external field-effect or other actions. In particular, the coatings can be applied directly on iris surfaces.

Apparently, that experimental development of waveguide devices containing elements with thin-film coatings is a very laborious process. In this connection evolution of the mathematical models of devices and elements of such kind is an important problem for practical applications. Here modeling is usually based on solutions of boundary–value problems in which the approximation of a distributed surface impedance is used [6.1, 6.2]. On the one...
